Welcome

Dear Patrons of the Arts, Welcome to Faculty Art Invitational 2013: The Portrait and the Figure, the latest in the university’s annual series that showcases works by artists teaching within the University System of Maryland and by special guest artists. The Faculty Art Invitational has become a special university tradition—one in which University of Maryland University College (UMUC) celebrates the personal and professional accomplishments of Maryland’s teaching artists and works with the Greenbelt Division of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland to bring their work to the courthouse and consequently to the broader community. This year, we are pleased to highlight works by 12 artists presented in a variety of media and styles. The result is an exhibition that is as beautifully diverse as our community and our state. I hope you have the opportunity to visit the courthouse to enjoy the work of Maryland’s teaching artists. Sincerely,

Javier Miyares President University of Maryland University College

Director’s Statement Eric Key Director, Arts Program University of Maryland University College

The art of the portrait and figure has a long history. As many know, long ago very early conceptions of these art forms were created on the walls of caves. Today, these art forms appear in a variety of settings; artists and art teachers practice and execute them, of course, but so do young children whose parents give them crayons and pencils to play with. These children use their new communication tools to create stick figures and “What interests simple drawings. Eventually, they will create a me most is neither well-scaled figure. In college, art professors who still life nor landscape have been trained in the field impart their skills but the human figure.” to students so that they learn to create a well —Henri Matisse balanced, realist image of a figure or human being. In some programs, this instruction is included in the introductory freshman art studio class. In others, it is an advanced class for students who have reached some level of art proficiency. Using live models, students are challenged to create a work of art that is a full likeness of the person. With the tools at hand, they begin crafting an image onto paper or canvas. Most of this process is referred to as study drawing. However, it is one thing to be able to make the shape of the human body and another to portray the inner spirit of a person in portraiture. Some artists are able to capture the glimpse in the eye, the expression on the face, the wrinkle on the forehead. Others use the position of the body and head. And some use a background, objects, light, brush stokes, shadows, and/or geometrical designs to make the work come alive. The end result is a portrait or figure. The art of portraiture is an age-old practice, a mastery of the art form. From expressionism to realism, the art of portrait painting has had its place. It would be difficult to think of an artist who has not produced a work of art in portraiture. We see it in depictions of a figure in a park, a nude reclining on a sofa, or a shopper at a market. Portraits are simple likenesses. Some are detailed images, and others are line figures. Some are the complete creation of a scene with a figure in it, and, others are straightforward images of a person or animal. Whether in oil, watercolor, pencil/ graphite, mixed media, charcoal, or photography, the portrait and the figure present life through the eyes of the creator—the artist.

Faculty Art Invitational 2013: The Portrait and The Figure is our most recent exhibition featuring works of art by artists who are a part of the University System of Maryland and works by special guest artists. It promotes emerging and established artists within the system, serves as a resource for artists, and provides a professional venue for artists to exhibit. The Arts Program would like to extend a warm word of gratitude to the judges of the United States District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland, for agreeing to host this year’s faculty exhibition. A special thanks to Judge Peter Messitte for his foresight in establishing an art exhibition program at the courthouse. Additionally, Mary Russell deserves thanks for her assistance in bringing the program to the courthouse. These individuals have helped bring the arts to a segment of our community that otherwise may not have had such an opportunity to experience it. In addition, I would like to thank all of the participating artists, who deserve more accolades than I can give. They are teaching the next generation of artists and yet they continue to create their own works and serve as community ambassadors to the art world. When called upon to participate in this exhibition, they were not only supportive and willing but also excited about the opportunity. I would also like to thank the UMUC family, which has supported the Arts Program at UMUC for 34 years and the staff of the Arts Program. Thanks to Brian Young, Rene Sanjines, Jennifer Norris, and Denise Melvin, who make these exhibitions happen. President Javier Miyares, who has continued the university’s proud history of support for the arts and the Arts Program deserves great thanks, as does the entire UMUC community for all that it does to support the arts. Again, thanks to all who make the arts come alive and thrive in our community.

In Between Portraits and Figures Brian Young Curator, Arts Program University of Maryland University College

In 2012, the Faculty Art Invitational—the university’s annual faculty show—focused on drawings. This theme allowed us to compare different artists’ approaches to a narrow range of materials. The result was a showcase for contemporary draftsmanship by those working, primarily, in the University System of Maryland (USM). For 2013, the location and the focus have changed. This year’s unifying theme is The Portrait and the Figure. The federal courthouse in Greenbelt is hosting the exhibition. This year, 12 artists have been selected. Most of them teach at USM institutions and some are special guest artists. In an era of new media in which artists sometimes work in video or computer animation and are increasingly creating conceptual work, it is exciting that many are fully integrating the figure. For centuries, the figure has enjoyed countless iterations as an object of worship and mythology, as the basis for formal portraits and metaphorical stories, as a reference point for social change, and as a vehicle for solidifying memories. In this exhibition, it was impossible to cover that full range—for instance, few USM artists pursue formal portraiture or religious painting as a vocation. Today, art professors who incorporate the figure are more likely to utilize it as a stand-in for commentary on the human condition, both past and present. Jinchul Kim takes a realist approach sparked by his immediate surroundings. As a result, the figure naturally plays a distinguished role. He states, “Thus, I endeavor to create paintings that are not mimetic but rather an amalgamation of what I see in the lives around me and how my own peculiar circumstances have distorted these discernments. This hybrid, as I call it, exists, and how I see it to exist has been the focal point of my sensibility.” For viewers, Kim’s meticulous approach to painting as a craft is inspiring. Layered over that tradition is the mystery he infuses into his art. If Kim has little interest in the pure verisimilitude of the appearance of his subjects, the viewer has the pleasure of parsing out “reality” from the artistic elements.

Ulysses Marshall’s work is similar to Kim’s in that he relies on memory and surroundings, albeit in a more stylized fashion, with an emphasis on color and texture. In addition, Marshall instills in his work a socially conscious element that derives from his African American upbringing. He recalls, “My goal as an artist is to use these stories and tales as a tool for sharing the plight of the almost forgotten colored people . . . a people whose lives have been bent but not broken.” As the stories come to life for Marshall, viewers may be left pondering the fine line between disappointment and salvation. Al Burts’s work is inspired by religious themes and “the beauty of Americans whose roots are African.” His signature style is a singular, monochrome figure drawn with a careful, undulating line. Despite his stylistic consistency, his figures range from the homeless to the anonymous figures of the Metro to, perhaps, the largely forgotten figures of baseball’s Negro leagues. Burts’s ambiguous titles blur society’s complex hierarchy that places importance on one’s identity as it concerns one’s family, profession, or wealth. Clayton Lang’s work has a similar connection to those who have been marginalized. Katrina Laments, with its use of coral and mushrooms, is meant to conjure the coastal communities affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. While the storm was devastating, the artist recognizes that this was a tragedy brought on by nature. Fittingly, a somber face emerges from within the shadowbox frame. This composed figure, according to the artist, is not lamenting the loss due to hurricane forces, but rather our country’s response to the disaster. The earlier mask of Jan-Naj is more personal, as it commemorates the death of an individual close to the artist. The two-sided aspect suggests the woman’s likeness in life and celebrates her spirit in death, resting within the vessel. Richard Holt and Shin-Yeon Jeon mold their figures in three dimensions as well. While the tradition of using clay for nonutilitarian forms might seem rare today, the art of creating clay figures has a long history. Most notably, China’s recently uncovered terracotta warriors reveal the power of creating the figure in sculptural form. Its tactility adds a dimension of empathy. While Holt is known for whimsical monsters in clay, his figurative work appears simultaneously to be pensive and slightly lighthearted. Their scale, however, suggests that the works might have a greater purpose—that they may be Cycladic idols or the stylized figures in Pre-Columbian clay. While Jeon’s work comes closer to Kim’s realism (they are longtime colleagues), Jeon sees her work as psychological portraits of her figures. “My goal is to depict the transient aspects of human emotions in solid ceramic sculpture, transforming them into a permanent state,” she says. “Instead of a literal description of the human form, I attempt to suggest feelings by use of ambiguous facial expressions.”

When artists have a political or social message to convey, they can often reach a larger audience through printmaking, a term for the process of creating a large number of media that can be wholly original even if not unique. Within Maryland, Margo Humphrey is an artist whose imagery is disseminated in this manner through her lithographs. She may be celebrated for her social commentary, but Sunday Afternoon is an exuberant piece that emphasizes a young couple’s interaction through bright colors, a beaming sun, verdant hills, and a gentle embrace. The piece brims with optimism. All Crossed Up, in contrast, is more cryptic. Despite the obvious reference, All Crossed Up is not wholly a religious work. Rather, this print and others in its series are somewhat veiled references to the music of Rahsaan Roland Kirk and his song, Old Rugged Cross. Whereas Humphrey might cite Kirk, Sister Gertrude Morgan, and others as inspiration, Elizabeth Kauffman references much larger entities, such as globalism, capitalism, or her overall surroundings. She states, “The elements used have been pulled from a variety of places, including magazines, the Internet, and observational drawing. The result takes the form of something like a motivational or propaganda poster with shape-shifting slogans significant to everyone and no one in particular . . . ” While Iceberg is a surreal symphony of color and scale, it is a bold reminder that global warming exists in Greenland, for example. Fahimeh Vahdat was born in Iran but has lived away from her homeland for the last 32 years. Her work, though, with its inclusion of the female figure, is her personal means of voicing opposition to Iran’s treatment of women. In particular, these works, with their mandala shape and repetition of the Farsi word that translates to “oh God,” are meant to serve as part of a larger campaign started by women in Iran beginning in 2006 in Tehran. Vahdat recently moved to Columbia, Maryland, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and believes works such as those in the From Freedom Series can help bring awareness to the ongoing struggles women face in Iran. The relatively minor role the female form plays in these works speaks to the greater marginalization that many women feel in Iran. Joan Bevelaqua’s approach to the figure is unusual in this exhibition in that the figure is not actually shown. Mannequins, dresses and animal skulls become proxies. Ophelia and Study for Diana bring figures from mythology into a contemporary setting. Taking this surreal construct a step further, the artist has conveyed enough information in her elaborate tableaux to form a nascent narrative. The resulting dichotomy or irony is that Bevelaqua’s realist approach toward the figure is engaging and mysterious, even if not visible.

Nicole Buckingham approaches the figure in a relatively traditional manner in composition and scale. Yet, a slightly askew element causes her work to straddle humor and uneasiness. She has acknowledged that indefinite nature, saying “Through a series of portraits, self-portraits, and still life, I examine the experience of living, the events of our lives spanning the years from childhood through maturity . . . The work is very biographical. Much of it deals with my own frustrations and struggles and the frustrations and struggles of those I see around me, friends and family, from all stages of life.” First Rite underscores that indefiniteness, as it depicts a young child’s play with toilet paper that begins to resemble a heavily bandaged individual. The work of Joseph Cassar has evolved over the years from the realist tradition and moved toward abstraction. His predilection away from the tedious quality of realism may not be surprising when one considers how Cassar is able to build up his subjects from a few quick strokes. Grandma, for example, has the economy and scale of a drawing by the 19th century master J.A.D. Ingres. Yet, Cassar’s work has the warmth and respect that he undoubtedly had for this woman of stature and maturity. In many respects, Burts and Cassar share similar approaches in technique and the manner in which they approach the inhabitants in their own respective spheres. I hope that, for viewers, the sum of these 12 artists’ works is greater than the parts, that viewers draw comparisons among the different works, and that they recognize that The Portrait and the Figure is just a cross-section of figurative work being created across Maryland and within its universities’ walls.
